Corewell Health East / Beaumont Children’s Hospital

Dr. Obeid’s passion as a pediatric neurologist specializing in the brain complications affecting newborns is to see each child reach their highest goals. Working with ELGAN participants for so long we have been able to see that whole spectrum of your childhood. Beth, the study coordinator has been with you since the very beginning. It’s inspiring to see each of you as 17/18-year-olds and all of the amazing things you have accomplished.

The team here at Beaumont continue to be honored and privileged to not only have a history with each of our families knowing them since they were born as micro-premies but to have also worked with them through each stage and now as adults.

Although our families started off in the metro-Detroit area many are spread out across much of Michigan and even the entire United States. We look forward to the miles between us to not limit us from finding out how each of you are doing during this next adult virtual visit. Thank you for sharing your life adventures with us.

Beaumont has undergone many changes over the years as many of you know as you’ve come back for each visit. Our latest is changing the name to “Corewell Health East” which goes along with our joining one of the largest healthcare providers on the West side previously known as Spectrum Health. This change opens up a lot more opportunities for our patients and for the staff of the two systems.

Somethings will never change however, our strong commitment to you…our patients and families. All of us involved with ELGAN are deeply vested in our patients and families. We enjoy helping you navigate through the many medical changes through the years and appreciate you allow us to journey with you.
